Expirience with the YT Capra 29 Core 2

YT Capra 29 Core 2 Review In the 29er version, the new Capra has minimally less travel in the rear than the Mullet Capras. But the 165 millimeters of travel, which gives the damper in conjunction with the four-link rear end is easily enough to rock the most extreme trails. The asymmetrically designed frame also makes the Capra 29 Core 2 an eye-catcher. The flat 64,2 degree head tube angle of the YT Capra 29 Core 2 gives the rider lots of confidence in challenging terrain. On long tours, the comfortable seating position ensures a relaxed back. Heavy riders over 85 kilos aren´t likely to encounter too many problems with the high weight of 16,3 kg. For lighter riders, this could be a disturbance. Nevertheless: The suspension works extremely well for a 3199 Euro bike. A nice warranty promises sustainability. With 5 years warranty YT sets the bar high!
